Insider's Guide to Shopping in Dublin

A city break in Dublin wouldn’t be complete without a little bit of retail therapy. While the main shopping streets like Grafton Street and Henry Street are full of all the well-known high street names, there are also some other gems around the city just a short walk from Clayton Hotel Charlemont that are too good to miss. Here is a list of some of our favourite hotspots for shopping in Dublin especially if are searching for something a little different:
